The Absolute Sound Product of the Year Award Winner The Ortofon 2M Red is an evolution and an update of Ortofon' s best-selling OM Series of Moving Magnet cartridges. The 2M body, generator and stylus profile have all been greatly improved and this great budget cartridge integrates 21st century technology in an affordable package. "The 2M Red is the entry level and 2M Black is the flagship. Their performance is a fitting tribute to Ortofon and chief engineer Per Windfield!" – Neil Gader, The Absolute Sound The 2M series of cartridges feature Ortofon's trademark split pole pins, an invention which enables moving magnet cartridges to have flat frequency response, just like a moving coil cartridge. Ortofon invented the Split pole pin technology and were originally offered in the 500 series and Super OM series. The 2M Red uses an improved engine, which provides an increased output of 5.5mV. The 2M Red features a tipped elliptical diamond . The 2M series was developed in conjunction with Danish designer Møller Jensen Design – the same designer who designed the award winning MC Jubilee and very successful Kontrapunkt series. Inspired by the facets of a diamond, whose contours gracefully trace the grooves on a record's surface, the 2M 's handsome elegance establishes a great combination of form and functionality. The 2M series is designed for precise and accurate retrieval of the information in the record groove. Ortofon' s philosophy is to make cartridges which reproduce the record grooves as accurately as possible, without coloring the sound. The 2M series design has been optimized for ease of mounting and their weight and size fit virtually any current turntable. The name 2M was selected among several ideas. Ortofon wanted a modern name which would be both easy to pronounce and to remember, therefor

This cartridge is performing perfectly for me. One thing to note is that it's infinitely easier to mount than my Grado.. Orotfon provides threaded screw holes in the top, so you don't have to attempt to fasten tiny, tiny nuts to the bottom of the head shell mounting screws.
Replacing the stylus is a breeze too... just plug and play (when that time eventually comes). Very happy with my purchase!
